This series assesses the attainment of intended and achieved results as well as United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) contributions to development results at the country level. Their scope include, but is not confined to, UNDP responsiveness and alignment to country challenges and priorities; strategic positioning; use of comparative advantage; and engagement with partners. The number and selection of countries, and the timing of these evaluations, are determined to ensure coverage and to allow findings and recommendations to feed into the preparation of the subsequent programme. Wherever possible, these evaluations will be conducted in conjunction with other United Nations organizations.

The Independent Evaluation Office (IEO) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) conducted an Assessment of Development Results (ADR) in Viet Nam in 2015. Following the first ADR conducted in 2003, this is the second independent country-level evaluation conducted by the IEO in Viet Nam. Viet Nam is a pilot country for the Delivering as One (DaO) initiative. The ADR examined UNDP’s country programme for two periods, 2006-2011 and 2012-2016. The evaluation examined a total of eight programme outcomes as defined by the Common Country Programme Document (CCPD). The outcomes covered the following three thematic clusters, reflecting the programme structure of the current country office: (i) Inclusive and Equitable Growth; (ii) Sustainable Development; and (iii) Governance and Participation.

  • Executive summary
    The second Assessment of Development Results (ADR) in the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam was conducted by the Independent Evaluation Office (IEO) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in 2015.
  • Introduction
    The Independent Evaluation Office (IEO) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) conducted a country programme evaluation, or Assessment of Development Results (ADR), in Viet Nam in 2015.
  • National development context
    This chapter provides an overview of the country and its development challenges for the reviewed periods. It also presents a summary of the country’s response through its national development strategies and the role of development cooperation in Viet Nam.
  • UNDP's response and strategies
    Viet Nam is a DaO pilot country, under which all agencies in the UN System are expected to work together under the ‘five plus one’ principles of the UN reform: One Plan, One Budget, One Leader, One set of Management Practices, One House (Green One UN House), and One Voice. This chapter presents a summary of UNDP’s programme of work within the UN system, as well as its operational structure.
  • Contribution to development results
    This chapter presents results of outcome analysis for each of the three thematic clusters. There are two aspects to the assessment for each cluster: UNDP’s contribution to the outcomes (effectiveness), and the quality of its contribution (overall relevance, efficiency and sustainability).
  • Assessment of UNDP strategic position
    UNDP has remained relevant and responsive to the context of Viet Nam’s transition to a lower-middle income country during the two periods under review, with particular emphasis on using a policy-oriented approach to its work. Improved linkage of its policy services with the programmes and their implementation, as well as improved programme strategy, design, and management, could further strengthen UNDP’s responsiveness.
  • Conclusions and recommendations
    This chapter presents conclusions and recommendations drawn from the evaluation.
